Reviewed July 7, 2012

This was our second visit to the hotel. The first visit, no problems. This time, a few. The hotel is in a great location, clean, on the river, walkable to everything in town, innkeeper lives on site. Downside of all this is that the hotel isn't a good place to stay if you are bothered by perfume smells or have asthma. As soon as you enter the rooms, there is a strong perfume smell that hits you. We discovered it was one of those plug in air fresheners. The smell was so strong you could taste it. Even the office had the smell, so it seems they may use this in all the rooms. We unplugged it immediately and out it outside the door as it was that strong even unplugged. The smell induced my asthma so I couldn't sleep that night, plus the air in the room just did not circulate. Even my husband was uncomfortable and hot all night. It was a rough night. We hope that since the freshener was unplugged, by the time we returned later in the day, the room would be bearable. We returned, there was no change in smell, we packed up and left as I couldn't breathe. Just a warning to people with breathing problems.

Perfect location for a waterfront destination wedding. The waterfront views are breathtaking and the location is awesome for a wedding and reception. Wedding party all stayed at hotel, which was great so you were not waiting or looking for wedding party members.A fun time was had by all. Rooms are beautiful, very comfortable, and quiet. Jackie & Larry, Innkeepers, are so sweet and assisted us to make sure everything was perfect for the wedding and guests. Hospitality suite is great to prepare for the events and is especially nice to accommodate out of town guest that need a place to "freshen up" before the event. Oriental is a hidden jewel and the people in the area are so friendly and make you feel a part of the community even though you are visiting. River Neuse made a young couples dream of a waterfront wedding a reality. Thank you Oriental for making our wedding so special. If you want to "get away" and "relax", this is the place to make your destination.

Room Tip: Second Floor rooms are a little larger and have a loft sleeping area. All rooms are beautiful.

We have spent the night at River Neuse Suites on several occasions. The waterfront view is outstanding. Some rooms are single level, others are on two levels. Both types include efficiency style kitchens. Furnishing and appliances are all new, as this place was just remodled a few years ago. Innkeeper Jackie lives onsite and is very friendly and helpful, but not intrusive.

The location is perfect for walking or bicycling around Oriental. Oriental itself is a quiet, charming coastal town. It is the perfect place to unwind -- don't go there for exciting nightlife.
